One-pan Lemon And Garlic Roasted Chicken

Guest recipe and blog by Emily Hill @wonderwhyimfat

Cooking can be such a joy ESPECIALLY when it's easy to clean up afterwards. That's why I'm all about one-pan meals that let me whip up a nutritious dinner in no time, without the hassle of washing multiple pots and pans. 

One of my go-to ingredients when cooking any dish is lemon, not only for its delicious tangy taste but also for its numerous health benefits. Packed with vitamin C and antioxidants, lemons are known to support the immune system and aid in digestion. 

The combination of lemon and garlic is one of my absolute favorite flavor boosters, and in my Lemon Garlic Roasted Chicken dish, they take center stage. 

For the chicken – I prefer using boneless chicken thighs for a quicker cook time, and I always leave the skin on to add extra crunch and flavor.

I served this chicken with green beans, but you can pick any vegetable you’d like! If using fresh green beans, you may want to cook them prior by boiling, air frying or even putting in the microwave so they cook faster in the pan. We want to keep this meal as easy as possible!

Don’t forget you can always add Just Thrive Probiotic in any recipe and cook with it up to degrees. It’s the easiest way to make sure my family gets their daily gut support in. I sprinkle it into everything and anything we’re eating. It is odorless and tasteless and keeps us healthy and balanced no matter what season we’re in. 

Time to get cooking! Enjoy!
